Security Proofs for Embedded Systems
The 10th International Workshop on Security Proofs for Embedded
Systems (PROOFS) will be held as an online workshop. It is colocated
with CHES, the Conference on
Cryptographic Hardware and Embedded Systems.
PROOFS will be a virtual workshop this year.
The goal of the PROOFS workshop is to promote methodologies that increase
the confidence in the security of embedded systems, especially those which
contain cryptographic algorithms. Concretely, the PROOFS workshop seeks
contributions in both theory and practice of methods and tools applied to
the security of embedded systems. Examples include formal and semi-formal
methods, novel side-channel or fault attacks, simulation-based leakage
evaluation and security checks, protocol verification techniques, test and
verification of secure embedded systems (software and hardware), provable security for
physical attacks, and design tools for early security assessment.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- (Automated) security proofs
- Applications of formal methods in security
- Protocol verification
- Security evaluation of real-world systems
- Leakage-resilient cryptography
- Side-channel analysis and countermeasures
- Fault attacks and defenses
- Information leakage models
- Tamper-resistant hardware
- Countermeasure against hardware Trojan horses
- Early leakage detection, e.g. based on simulators
- Synergies between security and reliability
- On-chip monitoring of physical attacks
- Case studies and industrial practice for secure design
The proceedings of the previous editions of PROOFS are
available online in
Publications in Computing. We plan to publish this year's proceedings in
the same open access series.
Additionally, revised versions of the accepted
papers are published in a special issue of the Journal
of Cryptographic Engineering (JCEN).
